Join the Liberal Youth invasion

After a very successful Federal Conference earlier this month, Liberal Youth will hold its Autumn Conference on 22nd & 23rd October. It’s in the Roman town of Colchester* (home to the UK’s oldest market on record).

This is a brilliant opportunity for young Liberal Democrats to get involved with policy making and gain experience in public speaking!
